Le Fou Malbec 2017
Le Fou translates as The Madman and what most French thought the original growers were to plant, cultivate and eventually vinify Pinot Noir from the South of France, miles from its ancestral home in Burgundy. Le Fou is made in the Valleede Aude, now perhaps Frances most exciting region for affordable French Pinot Noir. Aude is a larger area that includes some of Frances most famous AOCs including Corbieries, Fitou and has some great cooler climate vineyards on the foothills of the Pyrennes where Le Fou is grown. A luscious, scrumptious Pinot Noir made without oak from the Aude valley offering sweet berry fruit with a savoury twist. With layers of really lovely fruit, its very drinkable and perfect if you’re looking for a riper, fruitier style of Pinot.
